Default New key, new map??

When I bought this car it came with one key/fob. The dealer ordered a new key for me and it came in the other day and the guy in parts programmed it to the car. Not only did the new key reset everything (expected after some searching) but the map display is TOTALLY different. Here are the different displays:

New key, new map??-img_0500.png_2.jpg

I know the red is supposed to be traffic, but in the new display all major roads (as you can see) are red. There is NO traffic. I did check the display traffic (?) box in the iDrive.

Ideas???????

I downloaded the old key's profile onto a USB and then re-installed it. I then swapped keys and started the car. The NAV took longer to start then normal and when it did the all-red freeways were gone.

Turns out the red freeways is the normal display. Going to gray-traffic (or whatever it's called) eliminates the red....

My misunderstanding of the system
